Since 1979 the Atlanta Ronald McDonald Houses have served more than 48,000 families with ill and injured children receiving medical care nearby. These Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. Volunteers are an essential part of this mission. For this service opportunity, Pebble Tossers will prepare and serve dinner for the families at the Ronald McDonald House near CHOA at Scottish Rite. Pebble Tossers will provide all of the ingredients, volunteers will make the dinner at the Ronald McDonald House. All volunteers must be 14 years and older and accompanied by an adult chaperone if under 18 years old. Volunteers 18 and over must wear a mask while in service and show a driver's license or passport at the lobby.Open Project Registration: Not yet a Pebble Tossers member and would like to participate in this project?
